Durham unveil new pavilion
 Women's Football News 4 Nov 2016
After working closely with the club to secure funding for the project, Middlesex FA Chief Executive, Peter Clayton, was on hand to cut the ribbon and unveil the fantastic new facilities at Denham United Ladies FC's, The Den, this week. 
The club, who are recognised as the largest team for women in the South of England, secured the finance thanks to grants from the Premier League, the Football Stadia Improvement Fund (FSIF) and the FA Facilities Fund.
Through this project, overall sports participation is set to rise by 41%, with the club looking to establish a new team every year, including a disability side, to build on their current roster of 10. These outcomes are projected as part of the Football Development Plan (FDP) - a long-term vision for how sport will be played at the new facility - developed by the club alongside the Football Foundation and Middlesex FA.
The new facility - comprising two team changing rooms and an officials' changing room - will be used throughout the Denham community, including local school, Wycombe College, to deliver weekly PE lessons. Denham Parish Council, a key partner in the project, helped to coordinate the administration of the new facility.
The project was made possible thanks to a £100,000 grant from the Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund, which provides grants towards developing new or refurbished grassroots football facilities. It is funded by the Premier League, The FA, and the Government, via Sport England, and delivered by the Football Foundation, the country's largest sports charity.
The project also received £72,000 from the Premier League, through the Football Stadia Improvement Fund. Funded with £5.2m each year from the Premier League, the FSIF is the country's largest provider of grants towards projects that help improve the comfort and safety of lower league football grounds in both the professional and amateur game. These improvements range from new football stands and turnstiles to floodlighting and improved provision for disabled supporters.
Since it was launched in 2000, the Foundation has awarded around 15,000 grants worth more than £580m towards improving grassroots sport, which it has used to attract additional partnership funding of over £800m - over £1.3bn of investment into the grassroots game.
Since 2000, the Football Foundation Funding Partners' investment has provided 224 grants worth £22m towards grassroots sports projects worth over £93m across the whole of Middlesex. By providing more high-quality facilities, coupled with coaching at the appropriate age group, the Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund aims to improve the experience for regular players as well as attracting new players to the game. Many of the new state-of-the-art facilities will serve to strengthen the connection between professional football clubs and their local communities, particularly in the most deprived areas of the country, through the professional clubs' community trusts' outreach work.
Joanne Currivan, Secretary, Denham United Ladies FC, said: "We would like to thank Middlesex FA for their help in receiving a grant from the Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund. This new facility will help us to attract and retain more players which will then help improve grassroots sport in the area."
Paul Thorogood, Chief Executive, Football Foundation, added: "I am delighted that a grant from the Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund has enabled Denham United Ladies FC to build a brand new changing room pavilion. This development will provide a real boost to sport in the local area."
